Code of Conduct for Club Tennis
Hartswood Tennis Club aims to provide a tennis venue that is safe, inclusive and has a positive atmosphere so that everyone is able to enjoy playing tennis at this club. Our code of conduct
and policies are designed to support this aim. The Club rules and code of conduct set out minimum standards of behaviour, which all members are expected to follow.
In addition, it is expected that members will
not permit aggressive, offensive
or abusive language or behaviour
encourage fair and safe play
discourage deliberate hitting a ball
hard at another player from close
range in social tennis
discourage disputes over line calls
leave the courts as we would
hope to find them
talk quietly when play is in
wait until a suitable break
in play to walk behind a court
A set is completed when the winning team reaches 6 games. Should the club be exceptionally busy, the Club Captain (or other committee member) may ask the players to reduce the time to play a set (e.g. sudden death deuces).
Like the other club activities, club members volunteer via a Doodle and take it in turns to provide afternoon tea. For £1 you can have tea plus your choice from a selection of biscuits and cakes.
Occasionally, you have to sit and wait your turn for a short while to make up a set of doubles on a “first in first out” basis. If you choose to sit out, you will rejoin at the back of the queue.
